Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Kimberly Katrice Brown, age 59


Kimberly Katrice Brown, age 59, went to be with the Lord, Monday, February 20, 2023, after a long hospitalization at Baptist Health in Little Rock.  Kimberly was a precious soul who reached out to many with the love of Jesus.  Kimberly was originally from New Orleans, Louisiana.  She graduated from John McDonald High School and attended Delgado Community College for cosmetology.  Kimberly lost her sight in her young adult life, but that did not stop her.  She studied braille and developed other skills.  She attended Louisiana Center for the Blind and most recently attended World Services for the Blind, in Little Rock.    Kimberly was preceded in death by her mother, Jessie Mae Keys Williams and her father, William Curtis Barnes.  Kimberly  will be missed by her sister, Mrs. Catherine Peters of Chicago, Illinois, and her brother Michael J. Brown of New Orleans, Louisiana.  Kimberly will also be missed by  her three nieces and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins in Texas, Ohio, Alaska, New York and Georgia.

Due to her blindness and sickness, Kimberly was not able to attend services in a local church, however by being  in contact with her cousin,   Elder Dawn Miller, Kimberly was able to  attend church services via Zoom with the congregation of True Holiness Covenant of Peach Assembly of Northern Kentucky, under the leadership of Bishop Robert G. Miller.  She enjoyed listening to the Scriptures and singing in the church services.  Kimberly was known for praying passionately for all and encouraging others to believe in the Lord Jesus.

Due to Kimberly’s family living outside of Arkansas,  a memorial service is planned via Zoom video conferencing.

    Sincere condolences to your family. I am so very sorry for your loss. May God provide the necessary peace and comfort to your family and friends during this difficult time. Please remember these words of encouragement from the Bible: “ Jesus plainly told her: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” —John 11:20-25.
